The front brake of my 1978 Honda CB400A (baby cafe racer -- AKA "decaf") went almost dead. Here, we fix it in about 30 minutes -- my first time doing more than just an oil change or electronic reworkings! 8-) We assume somehow my brake fluid has deteriorated/aged from viscous fluid to closer to water (this naturally happens over time) and/or somehow has taken in air (which will sack your brakes entirely)...

|Millenium Falcon Holographic Projector - Tracey Jaquith|
Millenium Falcon Holographic Projector This took months (maybe even 1+ year) on and (mostly) off to *finally* get working! The idea, simple enough: fit our HD projector inside a Millenium Falcon model, that projects out its front. I found a Kenner remake (slightly improved but nearly a clone) of the classic Falcon I never had as a child (hella expensive). It features: * openining cockpit, sliding chairs, 4 full-size action figures can sit * about 50 various sounds and lights (activated from abou...

some fun with new ffmpeg filtergraph features. I had wanted to make a fully lit (eg: sunny) video be more like a dimly lit and blurry video -- using just filtergraph time shifts and blends. My plan/hope was to make areas of motion blur, and make areas that remained the same seem untouched. it worked! 8-) Original source was a shot of WWDC 2013 taken by Hunter Lee Brown.

Having some fun in twisty turns in canyons in the hills near our house, with my 1978 Honda CB400a. Hunter and I were riding together -- this is footage from his helmet cam. I had just learned about 2 excellent turn techniques: (1) lift your butt up off the seat when you move into place towards hanging more off the side of the bike (instead of sliding across the seat) (2) move your head, arms, and shoulder far to the left or right of the windscreen/headlight area -- pretend like you can't see dir...

My 1978 honda "hondamatic" CB400A cafe racer modified bike project. The "A" is for automatic (a clutch-less 2 speed "low" and "high" geared bike), so I named her "decaf". My first/primary goal is to remove the ridiculously large/lame instrument section into a single smaller combined speedo/odometer/"idiot lights" chrome single instrument, and relocate the key/ignition. For me, this is kinda ambitious! But fun to learn and customize something you love 8-) Pictures of: ** The factory 1978 version ...
